Memorial Day Weekend is the official start to summer, so why not bring in summer with one of the biggest festivals that EDM has to offer? Making its way to its highly anticipated Vegas show case, Electronic Daisy Carnival will be stopping at the famous Windy City to help kick off the season starting Friday, May 24th until Sunday, May 26th. After rocking New York in front of a crowd of 50,000 people this past weekend, EDC plans to keep the party going with the biggest names in EDM that the Second City Chicago has ever witnessed.
The Electric Daisy Carnival is set to hit New York City the weekend of May 17th! The three day EDM festival will transform Citi Field into an interactive dreamscape with innovative art installations, carnival rides, and the dramatic and unparalleled décor that Electric Daisy Carnival has become legendary for, and of course the world’s best and most sought after DJs!
Tickets for the 2 Day Regular Admission ($215 + fees) are now on sale, here.
Check out this year's recently released epic lineup below:
Presented by Area Event, the brand-new festival will invade Six Flags Great Adventure on October 6 in New Jersey for a day of electro-madness. Each ticket will include admission to the show as well as entrance to all of the Great Adventure rides, including the mighty Kingda Ka – the tallest and second fastest roller coaster in the world.
And to get in the Halloween spirit, Electric Adventure will be immersed in Six Flags’ “Fright Fest” when the park is re-decorated with spider webs and smoke machines, and flooded with costumed monsters lurking around every corner.
Tickets for the event will go on sale next Tuesday, August 28 at Wantickets, Ticketmaster, and AreaEvent.
Last year, Insomniac Events expanded their wildly successful Electric Daisy Carnival franchise to the sunshine state - hosting the first ever EDC Orlando at the beginning of summer. And after much anticipation and anxious waiting, the EDM conglomerate has finally confirmed that the festival-turned-fair extravaganza will return to Orlando on November 9 and 10 for another weekend of electro-madness.
Orlando’s Tinker Field will be transformed into a world of musical and carnival wonders, boasting impressive stage setups, interactive art installations, fair rides, and of course a star-studded roster of DJs.
Saturday, May 19 was probably the craziest day of one of the year’s craziest music festivals, the Electric Daisy Carnival, held at the Metlife Stadium in New York. There was more glitter and face paint than a seven-year-old’s birthday party and with all the neon cutoffs and shades, the scene could have passed for a circa 1992 episode of Saved by the Bell—the crowd was pretty young but there was the occasional Mr. Belding feeling the beats.
The biggest names in electronic, house, progressive, techno, and dubstep music from across the globe were gathered here for one heart-pounding and sweat-dripping weekend. This was a dance music lover’s dream and one might argue that Saturday had the best lineup of artists.
The madness, mayhem, and musical excellence that is EDC has finally bequeathed its best kept secret: its absolutely epic NYC lineup! Featuring 4 stages, over 50 artists, and occurring over 3 days, the sickest EDM festival in the US has not disappointed. While the full lineup can be viewed below, honorable mention must be made of the monstrous names appearing throughout the fest--beginning with the headliners!
Friday’s headliners include Armin van Buuren, Fatboy Slim, and Chase & Status. Meanwhile, Saturday is shaping up to be the crown jewel of the whole affair as Avicii, Sebastian Ingrosso, Calvin Harris, Alesso, Steve Angello, and John Digweed are set to melt face and headline the whole shebang. Lastly, Sunday tears down the house with headliners Afrojack, Bassnectar, Nero, R3HAB, and a yet unannounced “Very Special Guest”!
The coming of summer brings with it infinite possibilities for memorable shenanigans. For the denizens of NYC, that typically entails retreating eastward to the lush greenery and picturesque beaches of Long Island. While the Hamptons typically reigns king of summer festivities, there are also other notable locales (equidistant to NYC) offering equally fun opportunities—mainly located in New Jersey.
Jersey, the black sheep perpetually in New York’s towering, majestic shadow, has its own charms come summertime. Though not as glitzy as the glittering coasts of Long Island, Jersey’s own shoreline offers equally festive alternatives for the adventurous reveler. Located nearby, these Jersey hot spots prove that revelry is a mercurial beast: one that takes myriad forms, and truly flourishes when pursued by imaginative souls. Next time the quandary of experience leaves you pondering for memorable summer haunts, look no further than our dear, oft-forgotten neighbor, New Jersey.
As expected, EDC NYC includes the biggest names in house and electronic dance music including Avicii, Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Alesso, AN21 & Max Vangeli, Art Department, Bassnectar, Chuckie, Danny Tenaglia, Erick Morillo, Fatboy Slim, John Digweed, R3HAB, Thomas Gold and Hot Natured. They've also released more details on seating and ticketing.
General Admission tickets start at $85 single-day/$129 two-day and the basic VIP ticket package will begin at $155 single-day/$300 two-day for the two-day festival. For ticketing and updates check out electricdaisycarnival.com/NewYork
“Levels,” released in May, was perhaps the most anticipated track of the year and the most epic house anthem to date. Recently, another version was released with a little hip-hop flare. Flo-Rida, the king of releasing banger after banger throughout all the clubs in the world, threw down a verse on the song. Here is yet another artist exploding Avicii into every facet of music style. For some, this remix could be a little disheartening to hardcore Avicii fans who would hate to see the mega-mixer fall to the hands of mainstream artists. The song is fire no matter what, mostly because it originated from the techno-master himself.
There’s no VIP treatment like VIP in LAS. That’s why Insomniac wants to give their VIPs an extra special, super-extravagant EDC Las Vegas experience. The most elite and exclusive nightclubs have partnered with Insomniac this year, including Marquee and XS, to host VIP Stage tables at the event. These sections come with the swankest aerial views of the stages and many additional benefits.
CEO and founder of Insomniac, Pasquale Rotella, said: “We are thrilled to be able to deliver top-notch service, Las Vegas-style, to our special guests this year. I’m honored to have the two best clubs in the world host our VIP Tables as we create a truly high-end experience, in addition to the premier sights and sounds that EDC already has to offer to all of our fans.” This is truly the ultimate, VERY Important Person package.
